    By default there isn't a policy you can set. I created a custom ADM which I charged around £20 and this covers you for your whole domain. I don't currently have it hosted on my website. This will allow you to set Google as the default search engine. It also works with IE7 too on XP/2003 only.

    £20! for an ADM?! OMG?!?!

    Take a look at:
    Set Google as search provider in IE7.
    IE7 - add a set of search providers
    How to create custom .adm or .admx files to add search providers to the toolbar search box in Internet Explorer 7

    I am about to make an adm etc up for this anyway to set our new IE8/W7 boxes so I will post it later. Also I think you can use the IEAK8 (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/cc889351.aspx) to make a msi that you install after building that sets the options but I dont know about the limitation of the IEAK.

    On a side point Michael please note you cant really promote pay apps etc on this site without sponsorship, only freebies plz.

    Hi. Will this ADM work under the following conditions:

    Client OS: XP Pro: SP3.
    Client browser: Either IE7 or IE8 [I am partway through moving to IE8 on our classroom/office machines]
    Domain controller OS: Windows Server 2008: 64 Bit.

    Thanks.

    I have just completed a fesh install of XP SP3 at home. When it got to the point where it asks about Bing/Google etc I captured the following URL:

    Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer

    [Add Search Providers to Internet Explorer]

    My plan is to try this out tomorrow at work. If it works I intend to include the change in the next round of images [or I might be able to create an MSI based upon the changes?]

    Either way I will get back and post on any progress.

    Sorry to drag this old thread up but ZeroHour...how did you get on with your W&/IE8 boxes?

    I am trying to achieve this also (just want Google as my default search Provider) but I keep hitting brick walls!

    Any help appreciated from anyone! thanks

    Would it be possible for you to attach your adm file here?

    Cheers,

    Seconded!

    I would also be interested in this. I have not had much time to look at this since my last post and in fact I had forgotten all about it.

    But now that someone else appears to have cracked it why re-invent the wheel? Either way I would like to give it a go on our network to see if it also cures this issue for us.
